It’s almost time for the Raw 25 love-in and the Royal Rumble, so we’re in for a week of WWE really dating itself in the best possible way. We’ll see grand returns (possibly), big special guest appearances (definitely) and some shocking revelations in the next week or so, and it’s all terribly exciting.
But before all that, there’s been the small matter of Goldberg’s Hall of Fame announcement and link to NJPW, some serious accusations against Roman Reigns and rumours that Hulk Hogan’s WWE return is being blocked. And there’s also news that Vince McMahon biopic Pandemonium just took a big step towards production as the screenplay was handed over.
Inevitably, a good deal of the news this week has focused on the Rumble, with whispers of Daniel Bryan being a shock (if still somewhat unlikely) return (and winner), ever-shortening odds of Shinsuke Nakamura winning and rumours of EC3 appearing. All interesting developments.
And through it all, the superstars took to social media to show off their pre-Rumble workouts, start their mind games and give us more of those little slices of their real lives we all keep coming back for.
